The next one was a Scottish one, as the smaller me was VERY MUCH into Scotland at the time (and still often is), even though Scotland begins with an 'S'. The story was also set in medieval times (another smaller me fixation), with lots of extravagant swashbuckling escapades, and amounted to at least fifty pages.
It still wasn't enough.
So the smaller me kept going and, gradually, over time, became the me now, with lots more stories happily scribbled over many, many pages. Look at me! I can write (s)tories of more than one page!

A HAUNTED HOUSE, A SPOOKY WOOD, A DEADLY CURSE, AND THE BOY NEXT DOOR
When Daisy’s crotchety old neighbour, Mr Braithwaite, dies and a new family move in, she finds it hard to stay away from her window, intrigued by what's happening in the house next door. Why is the new boy acting so strangely when he is in his room? Why is he trying to avoid being at home? And what does all this have to do with the ill-fated gypsy encampment in the woods, and the strange disappearance of Mrs Braithwaite decades earlier?
Within a week Daisy’s life is turned upside-down by the boy next door, who has come to the sinister conclusion that the house is trying to kill him...
The thing is, HE'S RIGHT...
With a funny, feisty heroine and a handsome hero, this contemporary young adult story has action, humour and interesting characters, creating a spooky adventure mixed up with high school drama in a small Yorkshire town. An easy, chatty read with a chilling twist.
What if the medieval folklore of old was based in truth? And what if just one girl was charged with the task of destroying it?
Adventure, swordfights, love, loss, faeries, battles… and magic.
The Fairytale to End Them ALL. For ages 10 - 100.
Christina opens the wooden chest of her dead stepmother to discover she has been saddled with the ongoing task of the ancient Ostergaard family: To rid the entire world of faeries.
The only problem is, as far as she knows, faeries DO NOT exist.
Meanwhile, less than a mile away in the village of Blackwood, three friends are discovering just how very much faeries do exist. And just how dangerous they really are.
Christina is thrown into a violent, supernatural world of faerie killing, but it is only with the help of the three friends that she can hope to come out of the battle alive.
This story is a collaboration with Dr. Melchior Williams, who discovered a treasure trove of intriguing manuscripts from medieval Blackwood hidden away in the depths of the British Museum – documents which seem to suggest the existence and destruction of the mythological creatures so ingrained in the medieval world.
